Chromatic Scale 2

Jeff

PAGE Progress:

We will be playing a chromatic scale beginning on G. We will continue up the scale 1 octave and then descended to the G where we began.Here are the methods we will be using for the chromatic scale. Choose the one that best suites you:

  1. Figuring out the scale by using your ear. Listen to the recording, use your ear, and remember the half step motion
  2. Practice with me using the same method we use for learning the major scales
  3. Look on the previous page and read the music (least beneficial but helpful for getting started)

Using Your Ear (Option 1)

  1. Listen to the audio a few times and let the scale sink in
  2. Remember every note moves by 1/2 step
  3. Use your ear to find errors
  4. Finally, play with me to check your answer

Practice With Me (Option 2)

Alto

Tenor

Read the Music (Option 3)

This method is great for getting started. However, our goal to play this scale without music is still a priority. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Go to previous page to read the music
  2. Set the metronome to ♩=60 when reading the music
  3. Repeat 5 times
  4. Try playing the scale at least one time without looking at the music. You will get better as the week continues.
